Hi! It sounds like your boyfriend could use an AHA for both the dark spots and the KP. The AHA will likely help the acne as well but you can also try a BHA formula for breakout-prone areas. He'll probably want to cleanse his back if he doesn't do that already (a back brush with a gentle head will help to reach); I used Cetaphil's cleanser on my shoulders years ago when they used to break out. The exfoliation is liable to help with the ingrown hairs but be careful not to overdo it so his skin doesn't dry out (I imagine it's hard to moisturize the back without help). I used to have dark spots from acne scars and KP on the back of my arms but using the AHA and BHA I linked on my face and this on my arms mostly cleared them all up. You can find information on all of these issues in the wiki.

I have always been a fan of Cetaphil. It is very mild, has never dried out my skin and it doesn't have an obnoxious scent.

u/Rach__ · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You will have to find out what products are best for you! Cetaphil (very drying) broke me out horribly, but I recently found Cerave Foaming Face Wash and it is amazing! Moisturizer is also very important. I use Nivea Creme but a lot of people like Cerave in the tub. It breaks some people out (me) but a lot of people love it.

So I had that problem bad before I got Laser (which completely got rid of it) but this is what I would do to help my legs before I got the laser -

  • Use Cetaphil cleanser as shaving cream.

  • When shaving - Shave with the grain of the hair once or twice, and then once against the hair. (So you would shave from your knee down first, and then from your ankle up to your knee once), this helps with irritation a LOT.

  • Lotion immediately out of the shower with something like Aveeno Baby Lotion

I've been battling moderate hormonal acne for the past three years. Just recently I've actually made some progress and here's how;

Keep your skin hydrated. When your skin gets even slightly dry it freaks out and starts producing way more oil which results in more acne. I know it may seem like a good idea to use a bunch of cleansers 2 or 3 times a day, but this is the worst thing you can do.

I used to use a lot of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide cleansers, and since I completely cut these out of my routine the results have been incredible. They dried out my skin way too much, even if I put on multiple layers of moisturizer directly after a shower.

Here is my current routine:

Morning: Wash face with warm water. Rinse with cold. Apply a thin layer of Cetaphil. This product is a very gentle cleanser that always works as a moisturizer . It's awesome, if you don't believe me read the reviews.

Afternoon: Wash with warm, rinse with cold. If I plan on going outside; sunscreen. If I plan on staying inside, I put on thin layers of this moisturizer.

Night: Shower. I don't use any cleansers in the shower, only water. After showers I dab the benzoyl peroxide cream that comes in this kit on all of my active acne. Then I put on a rather thick layer of the moisturizer I mentioned before on the rest of my face.

New member to this subreddit. Looking forward to digging into the FAQ and wiki over the next few days... my current routine is not much of a routine and is very basic:

Hi there! I also struggle with sensitive skin, and as a result I have problems with dandruff, oily skin (especially on the face), acne, acne scars, and eczema. Sensitive skin runs in my family (I'm Irish). So, I will give you a personal remedy that I developed over the last year that significantly reduced these problems.

I got some good initial information from this thread in /r/malefashionadvice. I use most of the products that he mentions there, my personal favorites being the cetaphil dermacontrol foam wash and the cetaphil dermacontrol moisturizer SPF 30.

For starters, it is important to get in a good skincare routine. I was always busy in high school and told myself that I didn't have time to waste taking care of my face. It wasn't until college that I realized my lack of skincare was really inhibiting my ability to feel confident, so that's when I decided I needed to get into a good routine. I started out by washing my face three times a day, and making sure I drink at least half a gallon of water throughout the day. Skin becomes oily when it is dehydrated, and drinking water is a good initial step to keeping it from being dehydrated.

I didn't really solidify my routine until I stumbled upon the /r/malefashionadvice skincare thread. It all depends on what works for your skin type, but for my oily sensitive skin, this is what I found works best:

  • I wash my face three times a day, once in the morning and afternoon each with cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, and before bed with the cetaphil dermacontrol foam wash.

  • Each time after washing my face, I also apply the Dickinson's witch hazel pore perfecting toner. It's a lot harder to find than the cetaphil products (I just picked those up from walgreens), but it is definitely worth it. I've tried two or three other toners and all of them left my skin very oily and irritated. It smells a little off, but it's not really a lingering smell

  • After the toner has set in, I apply cetaphil dermacontrol moisturizer SPF 30. I'll also apply this throughout the day if I'm outside a lot. It helps control the sheen of my skin by keeping it moisturized. Make sure you wash your hands with soap and water before putting this on because you do not want dirt getting into your pores!

  • To get rid of the stubborn blackheads that won't go away, I use pore strips about once a week.

  • I wash my pillowcase once a week and my bedsheets every two weeks. Every night sweat and dirt and dead skin comes off of your face and hair and goes into your pillowcase and bedsheets. Keep them clean so your face has a nice sanitary place to rest for 8 hours every night.

  • I also wash my towels once a week. I have four that I cycle throughout the week (one every two days). Washing your towels is just as important as washing your pillowcase/bedsheets because they are supposed to wipe away the dirt in your face, so if you don't wash them regularly, that dirt just accumulates and goes back into your pores.

    After finally getting into a good facial skincare routine, I started having problems with excema and dandruff. I fortunately had a routine physical with my doctor where I asked him what I could do about these problems. This is where you may disagree with me, but he told me that I should not shower more than once a week. As I mentioned earlier, skin becomes oily/irritated when it is dehydrated, and one of the easiest ways to dehydrate your skin is excessive bathing. The doctor told me to shower once a week and more importantly to not use soap on areas besides the face, armpits, and genitals.

    I told my doctor that I shower everyday because I go to the gym and sweat furiously. He told me to just take a quick rinse after the gym to wipe the sweat off, and to apply lotion daily. I apply Jergen's Ultra Healing lotion once every night before bed.

    As for dandruff, this is where you may need to look elsewhere. While I do have dandruff, it's not much of a problem for me simply because it isn't very severe. I wash my hair three or four times a week with Dove Men + Care Sensitive Scalp. Since I don't shower, I usually just do this before bed by getting my hair wet in the shower, scrubbing the shampoo in vigorously with my fingers, then washing it out while also massaging my scalp. If that product doesn't work for you, you can't go wrong with some Head & Shoulders.

    I hope this helps you, let me know if you think there's anything I left out!

    EDIT: added towel-washing regimen

American Crew shampoo / conditioner.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser facewach.

St Ives Apricot Scrub (might switch to the sensitive skin version, which IIRC doesn't contain apricot shell pieces which are bad for your skin).

Luffa sponge with Method Body Wash. The natural luffa is great; I just started using the Method body wash because my girlfriend hates Dr. Bronner's, which I was using previously.

u/DejahofHelium · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

my daughter suffers from eczema and isn't into makeup yet, so we've had a little experience in reducing the redness without cosmetics... for her, what's worked best is a combination including

gentle face wash

good, consistent moisturizing



and sunscreen

and when there's time for "extras" she's been really happy using some soothing sheet masks, too in both Aloe and Green Tea

I know it's not exactly what you were looking for, but there's a chance that some additions to your skincare could help reduce the symptoms you'd like to hide... if I'm way off base and you're looking for makeup, please let me know and I'll run through my husbands "cheat sheet" stuff for presentations!

I started getting similar breakouts near my chin after getting on birth control. After trying a lot of different things, I tried adding an evening primrose oil supplement to my vitamin regimen due to my research on this sub and elsewhere. It's only been 2 months (I know that's not a long time in skin-care land), but I have already seen a big difference in my skin, especially around my period. Though I do still get some breakouts, they are MUCH smaller and clear up almost immediately.

My regimen:

Morning: rinse face with water, moisturize with Cetaphil (in the tub), take vitamins/supplements after breakfast (one 1000 mg pill of evening primrose oil, one multivitamin, one 400 IU pill of vitamin E)

Evening: wash with Cetaphil gentle cleanser & pink Sephora manual face cleansing brush, apply coconut oil(I literally just dip my fingers in the jar and apply to my face).

I may up my intake of the evening primrose oil (the bottle recommends taking 3 pills per day), but I wanted to test it out first. I've also heard good things about spearmint tea helping with hormonal breakouts, but no personal experience. Good luck to you!

u/PhillipMB · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

Check out the /r/SkincareAddiction side bar. Here are some favorites they rave about (and I use myself with good results):

  • CeraVe oil-free moisturizer - this shit makes your skin feel so soft and good. I literally smile when I apply this.

  • Elta MD oil free sunscreen - sun screen that doesn't leave a white residue after applying, doesn't clog pores, etc.

  • Cetaphil gentle cleanser - I don't personally use this, but it's a very gentle cleanser and shouldn't hurt your skin. Good way to get rid of the dirt on your face at the end of the day.

    You should go and read the side bar and do your own research before you use anything though.
u/Bruno2019 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I'm brand new here. Previously used Cetaphil's facial cleanser as my only face product, but it was too harsh. I have relatively gentle skin. In the past, it has fluctuated between dry and oily.

Anyway, I bought the following products recently:

Go here. It will tell you how many calories you burn on a given day. Eat less calories than you burn, and you'll lose weight.

A healthy pace is losing 1-2 lbs a week (3500-7000 calorie weekly deficit). I recommend taking vitamin supplements while you diet, just to make sure you're getting all of your body's requirements.

I also recommend going to a nutritionist and paying ~$200 for them to measure your body fat percentage. Make sure to ask them the margin for error on their test.

Edit: Here are some other things you should do:

  1. Clothes - Get into fashion. Wear collard shirts at the least. Take your clothes to a tailor and have them fitted to your body.
  2. Hair - Get a different hair cut (simple, short, straight). Your hair is making you look unkempt.
  3. Skin care - It will make your skin look healthier, stay younger as you age, and will generally make you more attractive. Go here to learn the basics. Yes, he's gay. His skin is also fan-fucking-tastic.


    Cleanse then moisturize every day. Exfoliate before you cleanse every 2-3 days. Rub it in gently, or you'll get red bumps on your face from irritation.

This one right?

If it is the correct one I'll be sure to give it a shot!

u/lets_tacoboutit · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I was also raised by wolves with limited beauty knowledge, so no judgement.

Hand soap is probably causing some of your dry skin, so you should switch to something like Cetaphil for your face that's been mentioned by others. It's a great starting point since there isn't anything extra in it for acne, so it won't dry your skin out any more. Wash your face in the morning and evening, and put the moisturizer on after. Just put a pump of face wash in your hands, lather it up a little and then you're ready to wash.

It may seem a little pricey if you're new to skin care, but the container is so big it will last you a long time.

Also, here are the moisturizers I mentioned before
CeraVe AM
CeraVe PM
Using body moisturizer in your face can be a little risky since it's usually thicker than face moisturizer, so it may make you break out.

u/aggie2018 · 1 pointr/AsianMasculinity

I've tried benozyl peroxide, salicylic acid, oral medication, etc. but what worked for me was a gentle face cleanser like Cetaphil and a toner like Thayers. Also make sure to wash your pillow cover often.

If your acne is genetically related like mine then exercising and diet won't really make your acne any better (but still have a healthy lifestyle).
Over-washing your face will make your acne even worse because it dries out your skin which makes your body create more oil leading to more acne.
I would only recommend Accutane as a last resort because of it's many side effects.

i have pores so large theyre visible from a decent distance away. Is there a way to decrease their size? I currently use Cetaphil Daily Cleanser twice a day. Once in the morning, once at night before bed. Both in the shower. I periodically wash my face throughout the day but if i miss once chance to get rid of grease i immediately break out within 12 hours. I've tried Proactiv a long time ago, I've tried Clean and Clear spot treatment, Clean and Clear oil absorbing sheets, which works pretty well, i just ran out. Sebamed clear face gel, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-touch Sunscreen, SPF 30, and even Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, For all skin types and theyve ALL made me breakout except the Cetaphil daily cleanser Normal to Oily skin...

Now i've used all these products at random times... not all on the same. I've really been actively trying to get this under control since late 2014. So each time something makes me breakout, i'll try a new product.. At one time I was using (per the suggestion of a beauty stylist) to use cetaphil daily cleanser, Sebamed face gel, and then Neutrogena Ultra sheer Sunscreen in the morning to get me ready for the day. Then use the absorbing sheets throughout the day to maintain a clean face. Not get any dirt in my pores.

So thats the story... if someone, ANYONE can help me, I would appreciate it so much. If i really need to see a dermatologist, i guess thats my last resort. I really like to try all options before seeing a doc. Please let me know if you can help out. It's greatly appreciated!!!

I wouldn't buy on eBay - there is no guarantee that it's authentic. Here it is on Amazon, is Amazon available in your country? Amazon - Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

u/IcyHeartWarmSmile · 1 pointr/amiugly

Nope not acne gel. A cleanser will unclog your pores so you don't get as much acne. I've tried a few different cleansers, but Cetaphil seemed to work best for me. This is it. It didn't work as great for my sister though, so you should ask your dermatologist first.

I've been on's regimen since 2003 and it has helped me cleared my acne.

I use these products in the morning and before I go to bed:

u/vitamere · 0 pointsr/AskMen

So speaking as a woman, my skincare routine is, on average, going to be more involved than what guys usually do. But I do like all these products a lot and you should feel free to look into them individually. Also, many of them are going to be Korean skincare brands because Koreans really know their skincare shit. And since I have sensitive combination skin, the products I use are gentle enough for most skin types.

Step 1: Oil cleanser - I use Kose Softymo Deep Cleansing Oil. There's also another version of it that's the "Speedy Cleansing oil" that's similarly priced and just as effective. I put the oil on my dry face, rub in circles to encourage some exfoliation, then use a little water to sort of create a foam, and then rinse it off. There's also Cetaphil, which is of course a tried-and-true facial cleanser that's compatible with all skin types.

Step 2: Toner - I use Kikumasamune High Moisturizing toner, which is a Japanese toner that you use after cleansing/drying off your face. It smells like sake because that's one of the ingredients -- could cause breakouts, but I haven't had any problems with that. It's also a HUGE ASS bottle for a great price. Another option I've used is Aromatica Sea Daffodil toner. Also, when drying off your face, I recommend using Kleenex instead of a towel, because your towel can harbor all sorts of gross stuff and you wiping your newly-cleansed face on one can transfer said gross stuff onto your skin.

Step 3: Essence. I use a serum type thing but I'm going to skip over this because it's really not a super necessary step, basically like a thin pre-moisturizer to make my skin super hydrated.

Step 4 - Moisturizer. I've been using Mizon Black Snail All-In-One cream and it works great. It's also priced pretty well. Another option I've heard absolute raves about from /r/AsianBeauty is Stratia Liquid Gold which has worked phenomenally for many people. I'm definitely planning on purchasing this moisturizer soon. And also, using jojoba oil has also worked really well for my mom, so you could look into that.

Finally, sunscreen is a crucial addition to your skincare regimen that should never be treated as optional. I use Innisfree Eco Safety Daily Sunblock but here is also another helpful thread that gives feedback on sunscreen that has worked well for other people.

For spot treatments (like an occasional lone whitehead), I've been using Clean & Clear advantage acne spot treatment for like 10 years and it has not let me down.

Again, this regimen is much more involved than what most guys do (and if that's what works for them, great!), but there's also nothing wrong in investing in good skincare products!

u/cyrodyjox · 0 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Olay Renewal Cleanser.

What would you recommend for gentle cleanser and moisturizer? Is this something I should experiment with? Can you help me decide which of the following products I should use? If not I can just try all of them. I think it's worth it to throw away some money for experimentation.

Possible moisturizers I might buy:


    Possible cleansers:


    A quick search for chemical exfoliation shows me this. Should I try this later on?

    Edit: I noticed some of these products have acids in them. I guess I can use regular hand soap for a couple days until my skin recovers. Then I can start using these products.
